Topic homework will be given at the start of the term.
This homework is a list of activities that the children can do that will help with their knowledge with our topic.
This is optional but the children can bring in any work they complete to share with the rest of the class.

A new list of activities will be given out termly when a new topic is introduced.

As this is optional, we expect that the children do spellings, times tables, My Maths and reading at home a minimum of 3 times a week.


Spellings will be sent home on a Friday to learn and will be tested on the following Wednesday.

Please use Spelling Shed to practice your spellings. The link is below.

Times Tables

By the end of Year 3 children are expected to be able to recall multiplication facts for their 2,5,10 and 3,4, 8 times tables.

By the end of Year 4 children are expected to be able to recall all multiplication facts up to 12 x 12.

A times table test will take place each Monday
